Located on the Northeastern Coast of Australia near Cairns, Kewarra Beach Resort is a secluded tropical hideaway with a private beach and pristine rainforest surroundings. Guest are accommodated in individual cottages that overlook the gardens or the lagoon. The resort has two free form swimming pools with a waterfall and a secluded cave.

Tropical gardens that surround the resort are filled with Australian birds which have all been catalogued by the resident naturalist. Try to spot all of the 170 species of birds from the catalogue. In addition to over 170 species of birds, the gardens are home to colorful butterflies and thousands of plants from Australia and from around the world. The resort offers guest cottages with different configurations, surrounded by gardens. All guest accommodations have private verandahs from which you can watch birds and enjoy the outdoor air.
